Summary... header image

Electronics and Computing Engineering is a course that aims to integrate two separate engineering fields to meet the joint demands made by the electronics and computer industries in today's world. This programme combines coursework in different aspects of both fields over four years, with an emphasis on the design of computing systems. 

Companies who design integrated electronics and computer systems require engineers who possess the software skills to complement traditional electronic hardware skills. The Electronic and Computing Engineering degree programme has been developed in response to these industry demads to develop students' hardware and software engineering skills in an integrated way and the analytical powers to apply them jointly.

The Professional Experience Programme offers placement opportunities for students, who, in their third year, will undertake a five-month (April-August) off-campus work placement following completion of that year's study.
